It's hard to believe July and its 100% summer awesomeness is behind us, but on the bright side: we're one month closer to fall game releases! To help you balance your budget, here are the contests for the month of August:
LOYAL READER LOTTERY:
We will continue our Loyal Reader Lottery! When you visit N4G at least once during every 24 hour period during the month of August you are entered into our Loyal Reader Lottery! If you want to keep track you can follow along with your Daily Visit score*, so if you want to make sure you've logged in during a 24 hour period check this score on your profile!
Prizes: THREE winners will be drawn and receive $100 Amazon Gift Cards!
BEST USER BLOG: You must post a User Blog in the month of August! The top User Blog as voted by staff and the ten most active members of the month wins! There's no limit to how many wonderful User Blogs you can write and enter, anything you author here on N4G during the month of August will be eligible.
Prize: Gamefly 12-month subscription (1 game out at a time)
CONTRIBUTOR CONTEST: Submit news and get a top 2 News ranking in August and you can win up to three games!
The prizes are:
1st: 3 Games of Choice (standard edition)
2nd: 2 Games of Choice (standard edition)
3rd: 1 Game of Choice (standard edition)
Post on the forums during the month of August! Three winners will be chosen at random and will each receive $60 Amazon gift cards!
*Just a note: I'm sorry the Daily Visit score isn't more 'every day' instead of its current 'every 24h1m', but that is just the front end tracking for you guys and when we run the lotto we pull from a more accurate list. So for those of you visiting every day diligently but not triggering the Daily Visit score reward, don't stress about it!
- Contests are NOT limited to the US/NA.
- You have to be willing to provide a valid mailing address and/or email address as these are physical prizes. At the end of the month winners will be contacted on N4G via PM or Contest Ticket.
More Info on the Forum Lottery (what follows ONLY applies to the Forum Lottery):
What it is -a monthly lottery contest where the winner(s) will receive various prizes.
How it works -Using a random generator engine we choose a forum, active thread and a winner. The finer details:
-Single post wonders, spammers, rude or offensive remarks all result in a DQ.
-The sub-forums located in the N4G related block (Announcements & Rules, contributor, etc) will not be eligible to win, nor will comments made within the Randomicity thread.
-You can only win the Forum Lottery once every six months.
As always, let me know if you have any questions!
